My sister had asthma and as she reached her teen years and into adult life she outgrew it.

Some people grow out of it, some don't. For those that don't it can usually be well-controlled with proper medical care. Also, some people don't get diagnosed as asthmatic until adulthood (I didn't get diagnosed until I was in my early 20's) so it's good that your daughter was diagnosed early because you can make sure she gets the proper care.

Not necessarily. It really depends on the individual situation. I used to have asthma as a young child, so did my hubby. We both outgrew it.

It's quite possible that your daughter will outgrow it, but remember there's still a chance that she won't.
